Charlie Edwards BT Angel Moreno PTS

Edwards successfully makes the first defence of his WBC belt with an elegant victory over the tenacious Spaniard.

Moreno trailed Edwards from the opening round, happily tilting into the Englishman and taking shots in his stride.

Edwards was composed, efficient and accurate, though, using the uppercut effectively and dropping an embarrassed Moreno in the eighth round.

The home fighter did receive a telling off from his corner early on, however, showing fancy footwork and hanging out his head to be hit. 

Taking the criticism, Edwards still had flashes of flamboyance throughout the fight but ultimately cruised home while giving the fans something to shout about.

Joshua Buatsi BT Liam Conroy TKO R3

Another emphatic win for Buatsi, who comes through Conroy with consummate ease in a professional performance.

Conroy was proving a tough competitor but got caught with a right to the side of the head and shortly after hit the canvas with a follow-up left.

After Conroy got to his feet, Buatsi chased the Barrow fighter and snapped his head back with a fierce right, dropping him once more and causing the referee to stop the bout.

Shannon Courtenay BT Cristina Busuioc PTS

A dominant win for The Baby-Faced Assassin on her debut. 

Courtenay came out the blocks firing and look like she would claim a stoppage victory in the first round, before which Busuioc had to swiftly exit and return to the ring to collect her cup.

The Romanian showed heart to carry on, however, but merely just took punishment for the four rounds.

Lawrence Okolie BT Wadi Camacho TKO R4

Okolie said he knocking out Camacho was a formality, and that it proved.

The Hackney fighter landed some hefty blows early on and, despite copping a big right in the second round, cruised through the fight.

A big right hand in the fourth round dropped Camacho and a follow-up right after he got back up caused the referee to step in. Light work for Okolie, who reclaims his Commonwealth title with that win.

Lewis Ritson BT German Argentino Benitez PTS

The first televised encounter of the night was a topsy-turvy, scrappy one.

Ritson started well and dictate the pace, but Benitez’s terrier-like approach was difficult to shrug off, with the Argentinian coming on strongly at the end.

The judges have done a real injustice giving Ritson eight or nine rounds from that, with Sky Sports’ card coming out as a draw.
